I like looking for unique recipes. Made a pavlova for gluten-allergy family a few years ago and now have to make it for every function!

btw. Learn how to make your own frosting for cakes. Trust me.

I like to bake on occasion. Mostly German desserts because that's what I grew up with. Apfelkuchen, Pflaumenkuchen, Rhabarberkuchen, and Stollen are the most common.
>>
>>7122179
I really enjoy baking bread, but I honestly can't eat much of it on my own, so what I was baking often went bad before I could eat it all.

I really enjoyed making rye breads. I really think rye is underappreciated here in the states, or at the very least, here in Washington state.

I used AP flour, a bit of salt, olive oil and instant yeast. Let it proof for 30 minutes before I cut and made it into knots, then rolled in seasonings and let proof again for about 15 minutes, until they filled the pan.

Any advice on making a better dough?
>>
>>7124135
Tell us what your hydration was so that we may better help you. Also, using strong flour (for dat gluten) with a little oil (for dat conditioning) gives a dough that's both elastic and soft.

>>7122179
Bread. Specifically, sourdough-leavened bread. My loaf from two days ago: >>7121133/>>7121135. Pic related is a mini-baguette from a while back.
>>
>>7124135
Longer fermentation time. What is your recipe exactly?

1.5 tsp. instant yeast is enough to get an enriched(oil in this case) dough made with 1 lb of flour and typical hydration ready to bake in less than 3 hours. Mix your dough, let if ferment for 1.5 to 2 hours. Knock down, shape and proof for 40-60 minutes. Depends on the temperature in your house.

You rushed it a bit and that accounts for the pale color and I assume lackluster flavor.
>>
>>7122179
No, because I don't have a vagina.
>>
>>7124154
You're a faggot.
Kneading large batches of dough by hand (or, while I was working as a pro-baker, by fucking oar) requires the sort of upper body strength most women just don't have. Working in an artisanal bread bakery all through college, I never once worked with a woman and everyone was swole as fuck.

>>7124146

I used about 300g flour to 200g warm water, 1 tsp each of salt oil and yeast. How long should I ferment it for?

>>
>>7124190
>>7124191
>66% hydration
>1tsp each salt, oil and [instant] yeast
Sounds about fine, actually, just that strong flour would provide a better texture due to high protein (in the form of gluten) content.
When you say it's lackluster, do you mean that the flavour is bland? That'll generally be the case with quickly made-and-baked dough, especially using instant. For better flavour development, retard your dough in the fridge a few days then let it come to temperature on the bench before rolling/shaping. If it rolls poorly, allow it to rest in quite a warm place (a good idea is to turn on your oven for 30 seconds, then put the dough in there in a bowl for about 30 minutes to an hour) to make it a bit easier to work with.

To my knowledge the colour is not affected by how long the dough sits about. I think the other Anon meant that you rushed it into and out of the oven, which certain does affect colour.
But then, garlic knots aren't meant to be toasty brown. I think yours are a nice colour, moreorless.
>>
>>7124209
Wait a sec... I thought it read 1tbsp rather than 1tsp. And I even typed out 1tsp. Where the hell was my mind at that point? Fucking weird.

Now, I don't use instant yeast ever, but I'm pretty sure 1tsp isn't enough for 300g of flour. For 300g, I use 8g of ADY. I think that's about 1tbsp. I've heard that for instant, you want to increase the amount of yeast used by 25% but having never used instant, I can't say for certain.
>>
>>7124209
>To my knowledge the colour is not affected by how long the dough sits about. I think the other Anon meant that you rushed it into and out of the oven, which certain does affect colour.

I meant the rushed fermentation has an effect on the color. Enzymes break the starch in flour down into sugars and a properly fermented dough will brown much better than a rushed dough. It's easy to see the difference if you bake a little chunk of quickly leavened bread next to one that has been retarded or had a slow bulk fermentation.

from wikipedia:
>the grain enzyme diastase begins to convert starch in the grain to maltose. The baker's yeast enzyme maltase converts maltose into glucose, invertase converts any added sucrose to glucose and fructose
The yeast obviously feed on the sugar, but they don't eat it all, and you can see the difference in the crust.
>>
>>7124209
Yes, the flavour of the dough itself was quite bland. I'll keep that in mind next time! How do you deal with the stickiness of the dough? I was dusting my hands/counter with flour constantly when kneading but I feel like that adds too much flour.

>>7124225
I'll add some sugar to the dough next time.
>>
>>7124219
>I've heard that for instant, you want to increase the amount of yeast used by 25% but having never used instant, I can't say for certain.
You've got that backwards. Instant yeast retains more living yeast cells than traditional active dry yeast and you reduce the amount you use by anywhere from 25-33% depending on who you ask.

Like I said in a previous post, I use 1.5 tsp. for 1 lb or 454g flour, to be ready to bake in 3 hours. You can use more or less depending on how much time you are willing to invest. Even if you use significantly less the yeast breed and you will get there.
>>
>>7124229
>How do you deal with the stickiness of the dough? I was dusting my hands/counter with flour constantly when kneading but I feel like that adds too much flour.
I don't usually add any excess flour when kneading. Assuming everything is measured right, it stops being so sticky when the gluten is properly developed. Just make use of your bench scraper in the early stages of kneading.

I have a recipe for ciabatta that is 80% hydration and I literally pour the dough out onto my work surface. It looks like a sloppy mess. By the time I'm done with my stretch and folds, the dough has come together and stands up plump looking as if it's a firm dough.
>>
>>7124229
You just gotta power through in my experience. You're gonna end up with a layer of dough all of your hands and bench if you don't have a scraper, but eventually it stops being a piece of lazy shit and soaks up the water. Or just leave it to sit for half a day, then it sort of does it itself.

>>7124209
I tend to put my bowl of dough on top of a smaller bowl with some hot water in, like a sort of backwards bain marie. Just provides enough warmth to get it really going.
>>
>>7124229
>stickiness
Ya need to develop dat gluten, fám.
I'm not recommending strong flour because I like being meme-y. I'm recommending it because it really does make a difference due to its higher gluten content. Then knead, knead, knead and knead.
You can add gluten directly, too, but it won't be as good as what you'd get from a good, strong flour. Thereafter, just power through and the stickiness will dissipate with enough kneading. Takes a while. For pizza, 50-66% final hydration is generally normal.

>>7124245
I used to do that with the hot water bowl thing when I first left university (worked as a bread baker all through college), trying to recreate the proofer. I decided thereafter that the oven method works better for me because it's faster and with less clean-up necessary after.

What temperature do you guys that use an oven or hot water to proof keep your house at? I've never done any of that, but I keep my house at 77 fahrenheit year round. So I gather that is warmer than average. I actually reduce the yeast called for in most recipes by as much as half.
>>
>>7124302
Oven guy here.
I'm also out of the average because I'm a cheap motherfucker and only turn on my heat when it dips below 45°F in the winter, never have my heat on at night while I sleep (I need to be cold when I sleep) and only turn on the AC when it shoots above 90°F in the summer and at night while I sleep (again: cold, sleep, etc).

I don't "enjoy" baking but I "can" do it.

I made these mixed berry bars the other day. My fat wife ate the entire pan the following day (as meals) instead of eating actual food.

That's probably why I don't bake as much as I used to. I'm tired of watching her balloon up. It's gross.

>>7124357
>canadian
Fuckin' right, m80-o.
Canadian flour, particularly Manitoba flour, is imported by Italy for use in bakeries and pastifici. It's very, very strong and great for that stuff.
However: being that the UK isn't exactly known for its bread-baking tradition, wouldn't such flour be quite costly there? Due to economy of scale, I mean, as I doubt the UK imports nearly as much of that flour as other countries might, the price should be a great deal higher, no?

2kg sacks of the stuff cost what amounts to £1,32 in my area. How much is your 1,5kg sack at Waitrose?

>so what I was baking often went bad before I could eat it all.
slice it up and put it in the freezer in freezer bags. bread will last months this way.
>>
>>7124059
Bake a long loaf, like a mini-baguette or sfilatino rather than a round loaf.
After it's cooled, cut yourself a slice and enjoy it.
Now, here's the part y'ain't gonna believe: store it cut-side down. Against the table. Standing up.

Much of the bread's moisture evaporates having its crumb exposed to open air. While some escapes through the crust, not nearly as much as it does through the crumb. And since evaporation goes upward... placing the loaf cut-side will prevent too much loss.
I baked a loaf Saturday morning, sliced it open that night with dinner, and had more throughout yesterday and as toast at breakfast today: still delicious. And I expect it to be delicious even tomorrow.

Try that. If it still isn't working for you, bake smaller loaves.

Brownies, bread, cakes, cookies... I like perfecting my baked cod recipe. See below!

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Place 2 tablespoons butter in dat bowl, melt in microwave, 30 seconds. Stir crackers into melted butter.

Place remaining 2 tablespoons butter in a baking dish. Melt in the preheated oven for aboutttttt 1 to 3 minutes, then remove dish from oven, nigga.

Coat both sides of cod in melted butter in the baking dish, bake cod in the preheated oven for about 10 or do minutes. Remove from oven top with lemon juice, wine, and cracker mix. Place back in oven and bake until fish is done and flakes easily with a fork.

eat.

That loaf looks shitty desu
Thats barely how a baguette is shaped. watch a video or two on how to shape one. The crust is pale and doesn't look fully cooked (and even if it is, it doesn't look crispy or flavorful at all).
You shouldn't have bothered with scoring if you are just going to make a bunch of horizontal cuts straight up and down.
Get a lame and watch a couple videos on that as well.

It just means high gluten flour. Developed gluten is what holds the structure of the bread together. On the other end of the spectrum is something like cake or pastry flour, which is low protein and used when you don't want to develop gluten because it could make something like a cake or biscuits tough.

Nah, those scores should be angled more longitudinally, and also should be cut pretty close to the surface so that the loaf expands upwards instead of outwards.
The scores in the pic don't really do anything for that loaf.

I'm not like trying to bully you man. Just criticizing your loaf. It probably tastes fine, but you've got to admit that it looks like shit.
Sorry mang, I don't take too many photos of my bread anymore, but heres one i made like 2 or 3 years ago when I first started making bread. Simple, slightly mishapen batard with some ambitious scoring done with a serrated knife.
Looks a tiny bit better than the baguette you posted, though it's far from aesthetically pleasing.

I made it a while back, so I don't recall exactly what formula I used when making it but it was likely 300g of 100% hydration starter with 80g of strong flour mixed into it.

Good for you managing to shape a loaf with parkinson's, fa.m.
Definitely do try baking a little longer or at a higher temp.
Crumb looks decent. You could probably push the hydration up to like 70 percent next time if you're confident in your ability to handle wet doughs and get a bit air-ier crumb. play around with that and also the conditions and times for primary fermentation and proofing and that crumb will start looking even better.
It sounds like you have a pretty good grasp of the theory. Just keep playing around with shit and take notes. Eventually you'll be working for a high volume local bakery every morning from 2am-10am, or at the very least you'll make some dank loaves.

This is where I started:

Follow all of those instructions and then just start messing around and wasting flour. eventually you'll find stuff that works.
Here's a vid on shaping and scoring too.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PmxDKuGLWuE
Next time you try to bake, do it along with this vid.
Also, don't start with wholemeal. Just stick to regular old white loaves until you've gotten your fundamentals, and then branch off to other things.
tb.h, you're probs gonna make shitty loaves for a while before they start looking good. If you're a neet just literally practice every day. even good flour is cheap and you'll have hundreds of shitty loaves to eat

Once upon a time, pre-Parkinson's, I worked at a bakery, actually, for four years, while at university. I was taught to bake bread there, but only the most rudimentary stuff. Like I know how to do it and we baked several sorts of bread, but the formulae were all pretty similar: for every 300g of 100% hydration starter, add 80g of strong flour or 60-70g of X flour (rye, whole wheat, oat etc) and 10-20g of gluten. Knead in nuts and seeds and stuff if the particular bread calls for it. Our multigrain added whole wheat flour and gluten and we kneaded in wheat berries, brown rice and buckwheat, for example.

Then lupus happened. Then Parkinson's. Kinda won the genetic lottery on that one, eh?

Kinda hard to form bread now, but I love it. Combine that adoration for the panarial arts and the fact that I'm quite miserly (similar breads cost $4-$7 per loaf while mine cost me only 34¢-70¢ per) means I still do it as much as I can, despite the difficulties.

I don't bake that often but I make pepparnötter (ginger nuts?) every Christmas.

Does pizza count as baking? If so, I bake a couple pizzas every week.

For the dough I use 300ml water, 450g flour, a glug of olive oil, some salt and sugar and half a square of baker yeast. Mix all up very well and leave it the fuck be for a couple hours. Then I turn the over on at full power, make some tomato/garlic sauce to spread in the base and random toppings. Roll the dough, assemble the pizza and put it in the over for 10 to 15 minutes.

They turn out ok but I'd appreciate tips if anyone has any.

Sorry, English isn't my first language. How do you say it?

I use a roll on it to flatten it.
>>
>>7128074
You shouldn't roll it mate.
>>
>>7128080
Why not?
>>
>>7128059
spread the dough with your fingers, don't roll it
also a good 15 minutes' rest after spreading can help, if your kitchen is warm enough and you're not very hungry
>>
>>7128080
you know what he meant, stop being a retard.
>>
>>7128074
"Roll out the dough" is technically the correct way of saying it

He's being a faggot though and it was perfectly understandable the way you said it

I have a friend who likes "lactation cookies", she also just had a kid and wanted to see if they worked. But she hates baking, and I really like baking.

I've made them for her twice, one time I made them vegan using banana instead of egg as an experiment (I'm vegetarian too and asked her if she minded me doing that to see how it turned out). She said the cookies tasted like banana bread.

Picture is cookies I made to take to work on Thanksgiving. I made 4 batches, pumpkin, sugar cookies, snickerdoodle blossoms and red velvet.

>I love baking but I fucking hate frosting shit
>>
>>7128276
They all look gross
>>
>>7128276
Does it still count as vegan if the product comes from a human willingly?
>>
>>7128281
I mean I would think so.

Like the whole point of oh don't drink cow is is that ohhhh it's made for baby cows

So breast milk is made for baby humans

So it's ok

Right?

>My fat wife ate the entire pan the following day (as meals) instead of eating actual food.


God damn do I know that feel. If there was any size or portion of pastry in the house my ex girlfriend would eat it for lunch and dinner instead of having actual food.

Divide the dough into sections and flatten each piece. Place the filling in the center and fold over the edges and seal it shut with your fingers. Shape each bun to your liking, I either roll them gently into a ball or make them oval shaped.

I use that basic dough recipe and whatever filling I come up with. If you make the coconut filing I suggest making a bit more since the dough will rise quite a bit and might make the filling seem sparse. For the chicken filling I like to cook diced dark meat with the glazed onions. For the chocolate filling, I used bittersweet and dark baking chips and a small spoonful of nutella [though any chocolate spread is good].

Baking is fun but I'm pretty mediocre at it. Might try to make this recipe for Christmas, given I don't fuck it up.

I also love undercooked croissants... It's weird but I might actually like them better than properly cooked ones.
>>
>>7130934
Do they look undercooked? I need to work on my kneading/forming technique though otherwise they taste bretty good
>>
>>7130943

I can tell by the picture that they're definitely undercooked. Croissants are supposed to be like pic related, but to be fair I undercook mine sometimes on purpose, especially if I fill them with cheese, undercooked croissants filled with brie and some cranberry jam on the side are fucking amazing.
>>
>>7124369
Looks great.

Its the opposite for me. I tell my GF I want none of w/e she is baking, then she bakes like 12 cookies, has 2 while theyre right out of the oven, and the rest sit in a box for a week and get thrown out.

Dog du?

If I want to reduce the serving size of a recipe will diving each ingredient equally be a good idea? Should I just make the whole recipe and freeze what I'm not planning to bake?
>>
>>7122179
I think I'd suck at baking, that's for females. If I ever did bake anything I think it would be cinnimon buns.

You're really asking this?

Yes...33% less ingredients will yield 1/3 smaller end product etc etc etc...

If you halve it, it will be half the size.
>>
>>7131308
>baking
>for females
I mean, just because you're shit at something doesn't mean you should insult an entire gender
>>
>>7124369

That looks really really well done. What types of berries were in your mix? Also a recipe maybe?
>>
>>7131312
There won't be too little yeast or some other problem?
>>
>>7131350

No.
>>
>>7131350

Shouldn't be, no.
>>
>>7128423

Why not use splenda or Stevia extract powder? That way you can enjoy your confections.
